Yup, I was surprised to hear her family model of dog behavior and to hear that dogs are more socially aware than people. And that she disagrees with Cesar Millan, though not as much as with the negative reinforcement trainers that used to be the mode (and that Cesar also disagrees with).
While driving yesterday, I heard bits of a fascinating NPR radio interview with a cognitive psychologist who just wrote a book about how dogs' physical traits influence their thoughts. So I downloaded the podcast and was really impressed by the guest, Prof. Alexandra Horowitz of Columbia University. I'm including a link to the weekly summary, which has a link to the podcast (mp3) under Wednesday 10/7 hour 2) because people might have problems with the direct link to the mp3. FYI, the show's Radio Times on WHYY.org. www.whyy.org/cgi-bin/newwebRTlookup. cg i
